[apologies for cross-postings, please distribute] **************************************************************************************************************** CALL FOR PAPERS 2nd International Workshop on Music Information Retrieval with User-Centered and Multimodal Strategies (MIRUM) held in conjunction with the ACM Multimedia 2012 conference November 2, 2012, Nara, Japan http://mirum12.tudelft.nl Submission system: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ACMMMWS2012 **************************************************************************************************************** Due to several requests, the submission deadline has been extended to **July 4, 2012, 11.59 PM PDT**. -- Motivation -- Music is an outstanding example of a content type with many different, complementary representations in multiple modalities. Each of these contribute to the way in which music is conveyed and experienced. Furthermore, the consumption of music is strongly guided by affective and subjective responses, which are personal and context-dependent, occur at different conceptual specificity levels, and for which no universal, uncompromising ground truth exists. Thus, in order for music retrieval systems to yield satisfying results, insight into the information needs and demands of the actual users of the systems becomes very important. To allow comprehensive and flexible exploitation of the multifaceted aspects of music, both the availability of complementary music-related information in multiple modalities and the role of the human user should be considered. At the same time, challenges such as the identification and optimal combination of useful information from different modalities and algorithmic approaches to user-dependent subjective assessments of music retrieval results still are largely unsolved. These challenges are certainly not unique to music content, but actual and prevalent in the broad multimedia community. The MIRUM workshop, held on November 2, 2012 in conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2012 in Nara, Japan, provides a platform at a premier multimedia venue for discussing open challenges and presenting state-of-the art work on music information retrieval adopting user-centered and multimodal strategies. The workshop explicitly aims to initiate a cross-disciplinary idea exchange between experts in the fields of music and multimedia information retrieval (and other related fields). -- Topics of interest -- Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Music multimedia content analysis - Visual and sensory information for music processing - Multimodal music search, retrieval and recommendation - Social networks and indexing for music applications - Music similarity measures at different specificity levels - Fusion of multimodal music information sources - Music knowledge representation and reasoning - Interactive music systems and retrieval - (Adaptive) user interaction and interfaces - User (context) models and personalization - Real-world issues (unstructured and noisy data, scalability, formats, …) - Evaluation methods and data understanding - Cross-domain methodology transfer -- Contributions -- MIRUM welcomes **technical papers** and a limited number of **position papers** (both max. 6 pages) with novel, thought-provoking work and ideas relating to the workshop topics. In addition, **extended abstracts for technical demonstrations** (max. 2 pages) are solicited. Accepted contributions will be presented in oral sessions and in a dedicated demo session. Position papers should consider visionary ideas based on a solid argumentation, and technical demonstrations should consider demonstrably working systems. In all cases, there should be clear relevance to the workshop focus areas. All submissions must be formatted according to the ACM Proceedings style and contain original work that is not being published or under review elsewhere. Each submission will undergo a double-blind reviewing process by at least 3 PC members. All accepted papers will be published together with the ACM Multimedia 2012 main conference proceedings and will be made available through the ACM digital library. -- Important dates -- Workshop paper submission: July 4 (was June 29), 2012 Notification of acceptance: July 29 (was July 24), 2012 Camera-ready submission: August 15, 2012 ACM Multimedia 2012: October 29 - November 2, 2012 MIRUM workshop: November 2, 2012 All deadlines are at 11.59 PM, PDT. -- Workshop organization -- Cynthia Liem, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands Meinard Müller, Bonn University & MPI Informatik, Germany Steve Tjoa, iZotope, Inc., USA George Tzanetakis, University of Victoria, Canada -- Program committee -- Xavier Anguera, Telefónica Research, Spain Thierry Bertin-Mahieux, Columbia University, USA Elaine Chew, Queen Mary, University of London, UK Ching-Hua Chuan, University of Northern Florida, USA Emanuele Coviello, University of California, San Diego, USA Christian Dittmar, Fraunhofer IDMT, Germany Slim Essid, Télécom ParisTech, France Sebastian Ewert, Queen Mary, University of London, UK Takuya Fujishima, Yamaha Corporation, Japan Rebecca Fiebrink, Princeton University, USA Masataka Goto, AIST, Japan Fabien Gouyon, INESC Porto, Portugal Peter Grosche, Saarland University and MPI Informatik Perfecto Herrera, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain Jason Hockman, McGill University, Canada Paul Lamere, The Echo Nest, USA Martha Larson, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands Jin Ha Lee, University of Washington, USA Mark Levy, last.fm, UK Lie Lu, Dolby Sound Technology Research, China Eric Nichols, Indiana University, USA Geoffroy Peeters, IRCAM, France Markus Schedl, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria Björn Schuller, TU München, Germany Joan Serrŕ, IIIA-CSIC, Spain Yi-Hsuan Yang, Academia Sinica, Taiwan Ju-Chiang Wang, National Taiwan University, Taiwan Ye Wang, National University of Singapore, Singapore -- Cynthia Liem MSc MMus PhD Student Multimedia Information Retrieval (D-MIR) Lab Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) Mekelweg 4, 2628 CD, Delft, The Netherlands Room 11.320 Telephone: +31 (0)15 27 88612 Website: http://dmirlab.tudelft.nl/users/cynthia-liem E-mail: c.c.s.liem@xxxxxxxx
